appeared accept right this minute as we -- except right this minute as we will come gov. sarah palin and senator joe biden. >> thank you. >> thank you. [applause] >> welcome to you both. has we have determined by the twine cost, the first question will go to senator biden. the house of representatives passed a big bailout bill -- or did not pass it, i should say. the senate decided to pass it. as america watches these things happen, was it the worst of washington or the worst of washington that we saw play out? >> let me thank you for hosting this. governor, it is a pleasure to meet you. it is evidence of the fact that the economic policies of the last eight years have been the worst economic policies we have ever had. as a consequence, you see what has happened on wall street. if you need any more proof positive on how bad economic theories have been, the excessive deregulation, the failure to oversee what was going on, letting wall street when and wild, but they needed more evidence than what you see now. so republicans and democrats were put in a very tough spot. but barack obama
's watch this one. >> say it ain't so, joe. >> you know who that is. >> sarah palin. >> sarah palin versus joe biden, very good. >> i was bringing up another one. that was lipstick on a pig. >> do you know why she came out and asked him is it okay if i call you joe? do you know the reason? >> i'll let you answer ha. >> she kept messing up his name and calling him joe o'biden. >> here's our last one. this one is different because it's purely visual. let's look at this one. >> that's okay. >> george h.w. bush in 1992. >> that's right. looking at his watch in the middle of the debate. like he had somewhere better to be. >> got to feed the meter. >> the one you didn't get that made me nervous as a staffer, al gore sighing. >> oh, yes, yes. >> talk about tea baits having an impact. gore was an an incline coming up and the debates stalled him out. >> as we're going out, we won't make this one a question. this is just parker doing her bill clinton impression. >> in my state when people lose their jobs, there's a good chance i'll know them by their name. >> yes. parker can feel your pain just like
: governor sarah palin. this is just incredible to me. can we see this? i know it's hard to because it's over my fat head, yes, but the poor cameramans saying, neil, your head's a planetary system, we can't get past it. if you can try though, it's interesting. that's senator of hatch of utah. i don't think he's saying president obama had a good night. as we pan the room and the throng, i saw portman, i saw robert gibbs i think. here's what's interesting. when this started, folks, remember what they said about each of their candidates. he's not a good debater. he's really not very good at these kind of one-on-one exchanges. he's all but unable to walk, talk, and chew gum at the same time. now, after the debates, they are all einsteins, and that they delivered a kind of a moment, and it was a home run. i suspect we'll probably see the vice presidential debates going into with the expectations low and afterwards saying how great they did afterwards. i have no problem with that. i built a college career on it. some of you argue a professional career. keep the expectations low, and shock them on t
. you know, our biggest online data that i remember was when sarah palin accepted the nomination for vp. in some ways we were getting for hillary clinton even when it's the women go. i think the clinton coalition really didn't come in. it wasn't criminally clinton, but the clinton coalition came in on the day palin announced a thing from the money. it's people can rally around your candidate and everything begins with a belief in your candidate. so i can't say what it's like for other candidates. but we had some days where there were some pretty tough days and people rallied and it didn't go the other way. and frankly they were just sunday's coming in now, this kind this kind of slowed down and people got nervous. but i don't think in our case we have a lot of those big swings. they do say -- there is a scene that candidates never get out of the race. you see candidates to stay on after they've had a bad moment and just keep going when they're going to get out. there is a kind of saying that a candidate doesn't get out until the donors say, which is when the money stops. into your other
'll call you jennifer. you were the stand-in for sarah palin when joe biden was prepping in 2008. we were all wondering what's going on behind the scenes. how important is it this prepping for debate now? >> oh, it's huge. i mean, can you look at books and study policy papers all you want. there is no substitute for standing behind a podium and having everything but the kitchen sink thrown at you and formulate phrases to communicate. there's no substitute, and no one loves to do it. no one wants to do it, although i must say joe biden was very game in 2008 to do it. >> tell us what it looks like. who is actually in the room? this is a pretty secretive process zoosh yeah, i mean, i don't know what they're doing this year, but i can tell you in 2008 they have the policy people there. you remember that biden and obama were just sort of marrying as a team, and so we had some obama people and some biden people in the room. the folks who know the issues extremely well. the room itself is set up -- the stage exactly like the debate will be, so when you do the mock debates, you're really in chara

[ applause ] perfect. all right. paul ryan, he's been saying yeah, there's been some missteps. >> we've had some missteps but at the end of the day the choice is really clear. we're giving people a very clear choice. >> stephanie: yes, yes. clearer and clearer. and then he proceeded to screw it up a little more by saying -- >> it's -- you wouldn't -- i wouldn't -- >> stephanie: dana in maryland. >> caller: good morning, everybody. how you doin'? >> stephanie: good. >> caller: i saw pictures from seattle. it looked fun. i like ron reagan jr. he's awesome. >> stephanie: he's awesome. >> caller: okay. so yeah, the debates i just hope that they talk about women's issues. i think that obama can slam him there. >> stephanie: by the way -- have you seen the new ads that are supposed to appeal to women with all of the b
debate after that at the presidential level. the vice presidential debate between sarah palin and joe biden topped 70 million americans. so the audience is huge. you have been in denver the past three days. what are you picking up from the romney team, from the obama campaign? >> i think the romney team is looking for a big night. they are looking for a game changer for all the talk about how it doesn't have to be everything. this is a big moment for this campaign. they sense nationally that they are on the verge of closing the gap. and in these battleground states some of these states seem like they are spreading apart like ohio. but they think this is a changing moment. i read one interview anecdotally about ann romney saying the first thing mitt romney does when he gets in these debate is he walks on stage, he puts the watch on the podium. he where is on the piece of paper, dad, because of his dad george romney also ran for president. then he finds ann romney in the crowd. and i think that that -- we'll be watching for that. how governor romney handles the first minutes of his pers
was part of the republican ticket. what did sarah palin think of the first debate of 2012? watch. >> mitt romney what is able to point out so many of these points that's of us in the audience if you will have been longing to hear barack obama be questioned about and have to give answers. barack obama did not have the answers tonight. he didn't have this buddy the teleprompter in front of him writing out -- somebody had written out for him in all these years of being a candidate and the president. the answers. he finally had to be candid and rely on his own lack of experience and knowledge about how the economy really works to answer these points that mitt romney was making. martha: the former alaska governor warns the campaign wouldn't go down without swinging. bill: there are major developments on the war in syria. turkey launching retaliation attacks. shells from syria struck a border town wednesday killing five civilians. turkey's parliament authorizing retaliation. >> reporter: bill, we are just short of a war between syria and turkey. the turks are saying that authorization for force
president obama really is. they didn't do the due diligence. they were too busy rooting through sarah palin's dumpster. how many more people need to die before the media starts to do their job and ask the tough questions. >> come on, andrea. that's going a step too far. >> it's not, bob, it's very serious. >> why didn't "wall street journal" do their job? >> the "wall street journal" did their job. look at the talking about libya. finally the "usa today" starts to notice libya. every other outlet it took over a week to even pay attention. some three weeks now they are finally wake up. >> does that include the drudge report and rush limbaugh and sean hannity? >> sean hannity is not suppose to be fair and balanced. you can't lum of everybody in. these journalists have a duty to be fair and balanced and ask the questions and give us the answers and they are not. they are lazy, they are libbial. martha: let me go back to one of pat caddell's points. he said he was so outraged that there was no slam for the fact the president took his campaign trip to vegas. as that news was unfolding it was an

. then candidate biden, vice-presidential nominee at the time had a walk a delicate balance with sarah palin. he had to be respectful of her on the stage and strong a lot of people thought it was a tie at theened of the debate wherever you stand on it want matter, but here is a clip from that, we'll get you to respond to that moment. >> you voted for the war and now you oppose the war, you're one who says, as so many politicians do, i was for it before i was against it or vice versa, americans are craving straight talk. hey, if you voted for it, tell us why you voted for it and you you also said that barack obama was not ready to be command ner chief and i know again you opposed the move he made to try it cut off funding for the troops and i roux inspect that for you, i don't know how you can defend that position now. >> remember, "saturday night live" of course, didn't want to answer her own questions, aski asking her own questions instead of answering the moderator. >> she was attacking the record and you'll see both do in the next debate. ryan will attack the current president of the presiden
debater, but he's also rusty. the last debate he had was against sarah palin. i think debating paul ryan and sarah palin are two completely different animals. and we haven't seen him do a lot of debating. so, you know, let's hope that he doesn't show up as rusty. if not, it will really build on republican momentum. and i think it will change the tone of this race. two debates where the republicans can really change it. >> a lot of the president's supporters didn't think he spent enough time preparing for this debate. romney spent a lot more time preparing than the president did. how much time between now and next thursday should the vice president spend? get rid of his campaigning and start practicing, practicing, practicing a debate against paul ryan? >> look, first of all, mitt romney's been in dress rehearsal for opening night on broadway for five years. there's no way you can take that much time off. but that aside he had a great debate performance and i don't want to downplay that. it was a good debate performance. but i think the president should have put enough time on his schedul
the republican nominee, governor sarah palin of alaska, and the democratic nominee, joe biden of delaware. the commission on presidential debates is the sponsor of this event and the two remaining presidential debates. tonight's discussion will cover a wide range of topics, including domestic and foreign policy matters. it will be divided roughly into five-minute segments. each candidate will have 90 seconds to respond to a direct question and then an additional two minutes for rebuttal and follow-up. the order has been determined by a coin toss. the specific subjects and questions were chosen by me and have not been shared or cleared with anyone on the campaigns or on the commission. the audience here in the hall has promised to remain very polite, no cheers, applause, no untoward outbursts, except right at this minute now, as we welcome governor palin and senator biden. [applause] >> nice to meet you. >> it's a pleasure. >> hey, can i call you joe? >> thank you. thank you, gwen. thank you. thank you. [applause] >> welcome to you both. as we have determined by a coin toss, the first ques
went on to that vice presidential debated with sarah palin by all accounts won that as well. most memorable moments from that were sarah palin not answering questions. so can he do the same thing? that was a very difficult debate. do you remember all the prep for that? >> he had to walk a very delicate line and not insulting her. will we see some of that this week? >> i think what you have got on the stage are two very knowledgeable attic could you lat. nobody knows the budget better than paul ryan. nobody has probably at least in the national stage a better perspective, big picture of the overall sense of government as joe biden. again, you may not agree with his conclusions. but he understands the intricacies, so this is going to be a great debate between two knowledgeable warriors. >> very quickly, what's on your show tonight. >> he well, we have frank will you tell us looking at ads and people's response. we will be talking about mitt romney's religion with congressman lab bore out of identified da who he. we have panget we will be doing a little bit of debate analysis. the ki
says everything -- >> so much to that debate against sarah palin. if you recall, they wanted him to be careful. same thing true with the paul ryan debate. >> i think the v.p. debate will draw comparisons to four years ago, which is a blockbuster debate. >> all right. thank you fore weighing in, great to see you. see you wednesday night. the first debate showdown is just 3 day away. what is your advice for the candidates ahead of the debate in denver? tweet us your answer, advice for governor romney or president obama. we will read your responses all throughout the show. new calls from a republican senator for answers in the deadly libyan embassy and consulate attacks this. time, it's senator bob corker who wants the interior director of national intelligence to explain why the fbi has want been able to make it in to benghazi safely. >> reporter: the fbi is worried about security in benghazi, conducting their investigation and interviews in tripoli, 400 mile away from the scene of the attack. senator bob corker of the senate foreign relations committee wants to know why. he fired
a news nerd, people under 50 have no idea who that is. someday that will be sarah palin. >> you think? >> yeah, she'll be a screechy loud mouth from the right. i like how marginalized phyllis schlafley has gotten. >> they rolled out women for akin. they had an odd video. >> it looks like one of those dove commercials. real women they had a sampling of women there just cheering on an absent todd akin. >> it's odd. i reported first that the video which apparently didn't mean to go live, they took it down right after i reported on it, it was the first woman breaking in video had a woman hiding in the shadows talking about todd akin. she couldn't show her face. she had no idea and she was saying i got raped and he didn't judge me at all. >> no one ever accused him of judging rape victims. >> right. >> no one ever said you were mean to rape victims. >> he did say legitimate rape. >> that to me, i if people had a moral center, they'd be holding paul ryan's feet to the fire or his comments on rape. >> not only his comments, but legislation. he tried to redefine rape in the house, he backed a
that he wants to be their president too so just like sarah palin made the mistake of always calling him the -- he's running with terrorists and disrespecting the president, he's going to pay the price for that. >> all right. >> in the election this year. >> we'll see how that goes tonight. keep watching. keep watching bill. i've already heard you are a frequent caller and they love to have you on, so keep calling back. >> next to diane in baltimore maryland. are you there? >> yes, i am. >> great welcome to the bill press show. >> good morning, how are you? >> i'm fine, how are you? >> i'm wonderful. >> we could go on like this all morning. >> i'm good, by the way diane thank you for asking. [ laughter ] >> i watch you on msnbc and i just love when you're on there. i was wondering when you were going to come back, because you were gone for a while and you're really good. >> thank you. bill has always been a really good friend to me and he likes having me here and i'm happy to sit in the chair for an hour or two this week. >> i love his show, too. >> what about the debates, you think deba
was saying how horrible and stupid sarah palin -- i think she's kind of an amazing performer. kind of. it is breathtaking. >> stephanie: that's the right word. >> so i'm interested to see what unfolds tonight for sure. >> stephanie: you know -- >> people always ask me because i'm somebody who does work with the white house what are the obamas like? what is president obama like? what you see is what you get. they are the real deal. they're completely authentic. they have the country's best interests at heart. and you know, i guess it is funny to kind of know how authentic and genuine and good-spirited the white house is. the obama white house and then to work on a show where it is just like nothing but scandal and behind the scenes secrets. it really is a fictionalized version of it all. >> stephanie: i'm excited for tonight. and you know this is the president took out bin laden. i'll bet he's terrified of mitt romney's zingers don't you think? >> yeah! >> stephanie: he's been practicing zingers. >> there's no w

? it sort of negates any positive effect. >> sure. it wasn't just the debates four years ago, but sarah palin's performance overall probably really did have a negative impact on john mccain. i mean, that's pretty clear. so yeah, sure, it's not without risk or without meaning. and then there's already been some evidence in polling that paul ryan has hurt mitt romney a little bit because of his association with the medicare voucher program that he's proposed. and they've even had to back away from that. that can't help in pennsylvania, either, which i believe is the third oldest state after florida and west virginia. >> all right. well, that certainly makes sense. philadelphia enquirer's thomas fitzgerald. thanks so much. good to talk with you. >> thanks, alex. >>> representative michele bachmann lost the gop primary but this week she picked up a major endorsement from -- speaking in a radio interview afterwards she laid out the focus of her campaign. >> this is the number one issue this year is the economy, job creation, how we can add more jobs and higher-paying jobs. i worked extremely

high-wire act last time in 2008 when he had to go against sarah palin. i think he came out of that debate looking like the statesman. i think ryan has to pass the commander in chief test. i'm not sure if when people look at paul ryan they see someone who could fill the chair in the oval office. >> robert costa, your headline, sir. bring it home. >> "biden with a smile survives, ryan for the most part shines." >> that's not what you submitted, but we'll take it. we're easy here. explain, please. >> i think, as you mentioned, vice president biden is a very experienced debater, but i think his challenge here is to have a little bit of energy, to have a smile, but to also survive against paul ryan, who though inexperienced on the national stage, is quite intelligent. i think we'll be bringing a lot of numbers, a lot of analysis to the debate. but biden has that populous touch. i think it will really help him. >> it really is going to be fascinating to watch on thursday and talk about as well. who do you think is going to win that thing, robert? >> i think it's going to be a dra
